        Mummy Cloth. Fragment with note on envelope containing it

      Thebes 1300 - 4 x 2 inches. Mummy Cloth with early Metropolitan Museum of Art Provenance. Inscription on envelope, "Mummy cloth of Juono firte - an Egyptian lady who lived during 20th dynasty (1200 or 1300 B.C.) found at Thebes - unwrapped at Metropolitan Museum of Art, by Dr Prime, January 8th 1887. (Cloth given to me by Miss di Cesnola)"In 1886 the Metropolitan Museum of Art, under the direction of its first director Luigi Palma di Cesnola, made its first purchase of Egyptian works of art, a purchase which is memorable because it was the beginning of the relationship between the Museum and M. Gaston Maspero, the Director General of Antiquities in Egypt. Most likely, Mr. Cesnola's wife who was a member of the institution was there for the unwrapping of a new acquisition done by the first vice president of the museum Dr. William C. Prime. Dr. Prime was also on the committee on objects of art in 1887, and with his insistence Princeton university established a department of art history in which he was chair. A fascinating piece of Egyptian burial practice with a provenance of the established direction of the Metropolitan Museum of Art during one of the most important acquisition periods of the museum. The Bulletin of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vol. 5-6, p. 204 Torn strip of undyed plain weave linen mummy wrap. Well worn from original use. Fragile. In envelope [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Verh. Dtsch. Ges. Chir., 16. - Berlin, Verlag August Hirschwald, 1887, 8, XXV, (1), 145, (2), 348 pp., zahlr. Holzschnitte u. 5 lith. Taf., PappBd. d.Zt. Epochale Vorträge, Einführung des Glühlampencystoskops! Max Nitze (1848-1906), ein Jahr vor Veröffentlichung seines Lehrbuches "So ist nun durch Benutzung der Mignonlampen das Kystoskop aus einem complicirten, technisch schwierigen, kostbaren Instrument mit einem Schlage ein einfach zu handhabendes, wohlfeiles geworden. Wasserleitung und Rehostat fallen jetzt ganz fort. Während früher für jede Untersuchung die so lästige Bunsen-Batterie gefüllt werden musste, bedient man sich jetzt am Besten einer kleinen Batterie ...." M.Nitze aus obiger Arbeit. "Erst jetzt beginnt der rapide Aufschwung der Endoskopie." Reuter, P.Bozzini und die Endoskopie, p.97Im Anschluß an Nitze's Vortrag leitete Alexander Brenner (1859-1936) "Seine Demonstration der von Herrn Leiter im Zusammenwirken mit Herrn Prof. Leopold von Dittel (1815-1898) neu construirten elektroskopischen Apparate" wie folgt ein: "Es ist keine seltene Erscheinung, das ein und derselbe Gedanke gleichzeitig und unabhängig an verschiedenen Orten erfasst und durchgeführt wird.- So bin ich denn heute in der merkwürdigen Lage, Ihnen ein Cystoskop vorzuführen, welches die Idee an Stelle des glühenden Platindrahtes ein Glühlämpchen zur Beleuchtung der Blase zu verwenden, in einer etwas anderen und wie ich glaube technisch vollkommeneren Weise zur Ausführung bringt, als das eben von Herrn Nitze gezeigte. Herr von Dittel in Wien, an dessen Klinik die ersten ausgedehnten Untersuchungen mit dem ursprünglichen von Nitze angegebenen und von Herrn Leiter construirten Cystoskope angestellt wurden, war als der wärmste Anhänger der Blasenendoskopie schon von Anfang an bedacht, das Instrument zu vereinfachen und ihm dadurch grössere Verbreitung zu verschaffen. Bei der raschen Verbreitung des electrischen Glühlichts und bei der immer grösser werdenden Vollkommenheit seiner Construction lag der Gedanke nahe, ein kleines Glühlämpchen in das Cystoskop einzufügen und die bei dem Erglühen desselben erzeige relative geringe Wärmemenge durch die in der Blase enthaltene Flüssigkeit ableiten zu lassen. Unter der steten Anregung von Dittel's ist es nun unserem Instrumentenmacher Herr Leiter gelungen, dieses Problem in einfachster Weise zu lösen. Das Instrument welches schon im Herbste 1886 der Hauptsache nach fertig war, wurde im Januar 1887 das erste Mal am Lebenden versucht, steht sei Februar auf der Abtheilung Dittel's fast täglich im Gebrauch und hat sich bestens bewährt..."

        Rare Broadside Colour Show Poster Livermore Brothers Court Minstrels, Music Singing, Comedians and Dancers appearing at The Agricultural Hall Bridgnorth, Shropshire Wednesday and Thursday February 9th & 10th 1887

      Stafford and Co Printers and Engravers, Nottingham 1887 - This is a hugely attractive are rare surviving poster advertising the appearance of Livermore Brothers Court Minstrels at The Agricultural Hall Bridgnorth, Shropshire Wednesday and Thursday February 9th & 10th the poster is not specifically dated but online records show that this show was touring in 1887 and also appeared at Whitby, Scarborough and Bridlington in that year, and the 9th & 10th February fell on a Wednesday and Thursday that year so it's safe to assume this poster dates to 1887 as well, The Minstrels appeared with blackened faces and powdered wigs in elegant court dresses of the reign of King George II, preforming ballads, Operatic Selections, Quartettes, Dances, Burlesques, and Comicalities, all accompanied with a superb string and brass band with a very strong African American vernacular. The poster is printed in vibrant colour measuring 50cm by 33cm approx., some wear and loss to blank margins, a row of small punched holes along left edge, creases and minor edge tears else in nice general condition, will be posted rolled in a tube Size: Landscape Folio 13.25" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Four Sides of the Obelisk. (Cleopatra's Needle.)

      American Polytechnic Company, Buffalo, NY 1887 - Color lithograph. Image measures 18" x 11 1/2". Sheet measures 21" x 27 1/4". Plate XXXIV. This color lithograph artfully renders the four sides of the so-called Cleopatra's Needle, famously relocated to New York's Central Park in 1880. Below each side of the obelisk is the square design which adorns the matching part of the pyramid at the obelisk's point. Published only 7 years after the obelisk's relocation, this fascinating print attests to the rapidity of the deterioration which the structure suffered when exposed to New York's climate and pollution. Particularly on the south and west sides, the legibility of the hieroglyphics has been appropriately compromised. This print is from a limited edition of Binion's "Ancient Egypt or Mizraim," Vol. II, published in 1887 and considered a landmark of American chromolithography. This copy of the print is in fantastic condition, with very minor foxing on the right side and minimal edge discoloration. Samuel Augustus Binion (1853-1914) was a Polish author, traveler, and translator. With "Ancient Egypt," he sought to present Egyptian history, art, and architecture in a thorough manner. He intended the size of the work to be sumptuous enough to allow for the faithful depiction of buildings, ornamentation, hieroglyphics, and decorations in their original colors, yet still manageable for use in both private and public libraries.

        GRAPHIC SCENES KICKAPOO INDIAN LIFE IN THE SOUTH AND WEST

      New Haven: [Benton Litho. Co.], 1887. 16pp. of chromolithograph plates plus front and back wrappers. Oblong 12mo. Original color pictorial wrappers. Wrappers worn, with some tears and small chips. A few stains, but rather neat and clean internally. Good. Illustrated with chromolithographs of Indian scenes stolen from CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO. This pamphlet is interesting not only as an example of the peddling of "Indian cures," but for the appropriation and continued resonance of Catlin's depictions of western Indians. Healy and Bigelow styled themselves as Indian Agents, but their main business was dealing in Kickapoo Indian medicines from offices in downtown New Haven. OCLC locates only four copies. Scarce. OCLC 8851722.
